Publisher's Summary

Throw out everything you think you know about twists, turns, and surprises.Get ready for the next big thing.Get ready to meet the Death Angels.We've all been there. A loved one or a dear friend becomes desperately ill or is tragically injured. Someone - maybe even you - says, "If that ever happens to me, I wish someone would just . . . kill me."What if you could choose when to die? But once you decide, you can't change your mind - ever. Welcome to the next step in the evolution of suspense fiction, an in-your-face/what-would-you-do topical thriller. Kill Me is a brilliantly conceived roller-coaster ride that zeros in on some of the most contentious issues of our time.Kill Me brings Alan Gregory face-to-face with the most challenging case of his career. As always, White's characters are indelible and the dialogue is dead-on, but Kill Me is fresh and thought-provoking in a way that's so uncommon in crime fiction. Kill Me delivers on all the promise of White's earlier work and then raises the bar in an unforgettably inventive tale of life and death. This is the book that you won't be able to stop listening to, but more to the point, this is the book that won't go away. Listeners will be asking each other: "What would you do? If you could sign up - really - would you?"

Great Read

I thoroughly enjoyed this book and found it difficult the put down my ipod as I wanted to find out what was going to happen next. The story line was very unique and although I read many thrillers it really was something new.

A Twisted View

Psychologist Dr. Alan Gregory only has a walk-on part in this one. The "what if.." part of this story rings so true. What if doctor-assisted suicide was illegal in your state? Oh, wait - that's true for about 50 of our states. OK, what if you were given a shortened life and a dismal death? Would you pay someone to kill you "accidentally"? I, for one, would seriously give that some thought. Well, the main character here is faced with that. Omigoodness! What if that turns out to be wrong? Or not? Or... Trust me, you will not want to put down your iPod on this one.
